The 95th edition the Pagan Weekly News found RevKess still wore out from Heartland and Zaracon recovering froma fall over the weekend. Though Z was unable to be on the air through the whole show, RevKess persevered and filled a good hour and forty-five minutes the show with news and information from, by and about the Pagan community. Below you will find links to many of the articles that were discussed as well further informaiton on those topics. You will also find a play list of the music and links to the artist’s pages.
As always, the hosts of the Pagan Weekly News invite the listener to share their thoughts and impressions on the content of the show. Suggestions for stories to cover are also welcome. You can email the hosts at firstname.lastname@example.org or message them through the Facebook page.
Blessings to you all and thank you for listening to another edition of the Pagan Weekly News!
Salon.com outs “Qworty” on Wikipedia as a man with a vendetta.
Janet Farrar and Gavin Bone: Janet Farrar is probably one of the best known names in witchcraft, especially when addressing witchcraft in the UK. She and her first husband, Stewart, wrote many books that are still be referenced today by Elders and novices alike. Gavin Bone, Janet’s second husband (hand picked by Stewart and the Goddess Freya), has over two decades of experience in witchcraft and other forms of mysticism. Together they present workshops, classes, and write. At Heartland they present workshops on energy work and a look at the evolution of wtichcraft in the 21st century.
Ed “the Pagan” Hubbard: Is the former CEO of Witch School International, recently retired First Elder of the Correllian Nativist Tradition and the CEO of Paganics. Most of us at PMPChannel know him as one of the hosts of Pagans Tonight, a nightly Pagan podcast on BlogTalkRadio. This was our second time seeing Ed at Heartland. Always a good time to sit and visit with him. Ed did several worshops on Pagan Leadership: How Pagan Are You?, The Path to Pagan Prosperity, Growing a Pagan Village, Pagan Leadership Training Raw and Conquering Your World.
Mike Nichols is the author The Witches’ Sabbats. He is an author, musician and former radio personality in the KC area. Mike’s worshop was called Wicca’s Blackcloth: The Occult in American History. In this workshop he covered the early influences on occultism in the Americas and how those influences helped shape modern Wicca, at least from an American perspective.
Tuatha Dea: Not only did this fabulous Pagan/Blues/Country/Folk band perform for the main concert of the weekend, but they taught a couple of worshops. Both aimed at the younger members of the Pagan community. Teen Team Building for Unity was an interactive rhythm event structured around the use of rhythm as a developmental tool and catalyst for building community through the power of the drum. Child’s Play introduced the truly young (and young at heart) to the basics of drumming for music and ritual use.
other honored guests and musicians:
Brian Henke, musician
Joshua Messick, hammered dulcimer
The Vine Brothers, featuring Joe Credit, Jr
Viridis, featuring Beltana Spellsinger
Finally, but no least: Food in the dining hall was prepared by Food on Wheels from Minnesota. Fabulous food. The chili feed Thursday night was provided free of charge to all attendees and was delicious. Their breakfast buffet was scrumptuous. We provided the rest of our own meals, so we cannot speak to their lunch and dinner menu. After tasting what they had to offer we wish we had purchased the meal plan. Unfortunately, at this time we are unable to find a web address for these wonderful cooks and their kitchen crew.

Hello, everyone! KaliSara and RevKess are at Heartland Pagan Festival down near Kansas City at Camp Gaea. This is the first year that Heartland is on totally Pagan owned land, last fall Kansas City Heartland Spiritual Association made their final payment on the land. Congratulations to them!
Towards the end of April, RevKess sat down via Skype with Robert McClung and talked about Telergy and the Lgend of Goody Cole. This weekend’s edition is the result of that conversation.
Here at Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel we strive to have a new episode for you every Saturday evening as well as our Pagan Weekly News and the occasional other programs like Musica Pagani, Lavender Hill and Selections from the Mess. Starting on June 5th, we are adding a brand new show to the line up. Home of the Ancestors with host Julian Marcus. We will continue to produce our regular shows and keep working on adding more and more to our line up for your listening pleasure and education.
Feel free to drop us an email about this or any other show at firstname.lastname@example.org or one Facebook. (Editing note from RevKess: Please forgive the background noise. I was multitasking during the interview and my keystrokes were picked up much loader than I had expected.)
Now on to the show notes for Saturday 25 May 2013: Telergy and the Legend of Goodie Cole:
Telergy‘s website includes information about the concept behind the music, pictures of the musicians involved, and links to online sources for further study on both Goody Cole and the earlier release, Exodus.
A review of The Legend of Goody Cole on HardrockHaven.net.
Robert and RevKess had a wonderful conversation about the story of Goody Cole and the process of making this CD. During the conversation Robert mentioned many of the musicians that he worked with on this project. You got to hear some of those musicians throughout the show as well as pieces from the new CD from Telergy.
Before we get to the music you heard, here is the promotional video that was produced in conjunction with the IndieGoGo campaign that successfully helped to bring The Legend of Goody Cole to reality.

Hello, listeners! Thank you for checking out the show notes for 21 May 2013, the 94th edition of the Pagan Weekly News.
Zaraccon and RevKess would like to thank the listener for tuning in, either live or in archive, and bringing them into your home, office or where ever it is you listen to PWN. Every week they strive to bring you the news from a Pagan perspective as well as talk about current issues in the global Pagan community. Often times you will hear one or both of them get up on their soap box on an issue, which you heard in this edition. You will also find them having fun, after all, if you are not having fun you are doing it wrong!
RevKess and Zaracon would like to take a moment hear to pay respect to those who have lost their lives during the tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma earlier this week. They are our in the hearts, thoughts, and prayers of many people across the United States and around the world. PMPChannel guest and musician, George Nicholas of Cernunnos Rising made a post to the official Facebook feed for Cernunnos Rising letting his fans know that the good people of Oklahoma are indeed in his thoughts and prayers. Faith Hamilton, a regular listener and sometimes guest on PMPChannel, a resident of Kentucky, has been keeping her FB peeps up to date on what is going on in her area as well as in the OKC area. To all the first responders, rescue personnel and everyone else who is working so very hard to make this tragedy easier for those who have suffered a loss of home, loved one, or propery: May the Gods bless you, each and everyone! You are truly heroes!

What We Didn’t Have Time For
Sometimes there just is not enough time to get to everything that Z and RevKess want to cover. Here you will find some links to stories that there just wasn’t time for….
New smart phone app helps you boycott Koch Brothers and other corporations that are killing the Earth or taking choices away from the consumer. As of today, the app is available for iPhone and the Google platform, an Android version is coming soon.
Michelle from the Red Grail visited Murf, Kate and Phil at the studio this morning. She brought in a lovely little blue dragon statue for Murf. Would seem that the fae had been playing around with Michelle’s figurine collection and knocked the dragon shelf off. The dragon was perfectly up right, but the shelf was on the floor as at an angle. Now the little dragon is sitting at Murf’s home along with all her other dragon friends.

Friday the 17th of May is the International Day Against Homo/Bi/Transphobia. Official referred to as the International Day Against Homophobia, it is a day to take whatever steps you feel necessary (within reason) to combat homo/bi/transphobia in your community. Even the United Nations Human Rights Office has stepped up and gotten involved by releasing a video. This little video is only one thing that you can share to spread the word against h/b/t-phobia.
On Lavender Hill we do what we can to spread the word about intolerance, bigotry, persecution and violence against members of the LGBTQA+ community. Corwin and Phil are both openly out in the community and often take a stand on these issues, both on and off the air. It can be as simple as stepping up and defending someone against hateful words or as extreme as marching on the Capital steps to demonstrate in support of LGBTQ+ issues.
Around the globe their organizations that can help you get involved:
Hello, my friends! Sorry for any delay in the posting of the play list from Mother’s Day. Been a rather hectic week. But it is here, finally!
As you may recall, 12 May 2013 was Mother’s Day. It was also the start of a tracking week at KZUM. So, the play list has an obvious theme and reads a little differently. The theme was Mothers and Mother Goddesses. For good reason. And as you can see by looking at the list, we included the recorded label, recording company, or the artist’s name again if it was a self=published CD. This is the first time the list has been posted in this format, we hope you might find it useful.
Any errors are mine. I would appreciate any corrections that you might catch. You can comment to this posting with those corrections.

Hello to all our listeners! Thank you for checking out the show notes for this 93rd edition of the Pagan Weekly News. Zaracon and RevKess do their best every week to bring you news, views, and interviews from the Global Pagan community.
Call for contributors:
There is a lot of news and information to cover and sometimes your hosts need your help. Today we are asking once again for volunteers from the larger Pagan community to help us cover the news that interests them. Z and RevKess find lots of stories that interest them every week, sometimes more than they can cover in 2-3 hours, but they want to know what you, the listener, want to hear about. Contributions to the show can be either live or recorded (submit mp3s to us at email@example.com), they can also be submitted in writing and read over the air by either Zaracon or RevKess. If you don’t want to contribute yourself, but know of something that you think we should be covering, email us or message us on Facebook with your suggestion. We want to hear from you!
On to the show:
If you are a regular listener of the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel, then you know that on Tuesday 14 May 2013, RevKess and Zaracon did a Brief edition of PWN. For a change, Z was fully awake and coherent and RevKess was tired and scatter brained. Would be nice if both could be full alert and coherent, but that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes. Rather than ramble on and be confusing, they decided to do a Briefs. From time to time there will be a Briefs put out, sometimes to fill when the show doesn’t air as it should, and sometimes to bring you up to date on something that is going on that the hosts think is very important.
That being said, PWN #93 is full of information from and about the Pagan community as well as a Pagan perspective on some of the mainstream news coverage you may have already seen, read or heard.
Peter Beckley returns to the blogosphere. After dealing with a kidney infection that lead to kidney failure, Peter writes about confronting his own mortality.
Greetings, listeners! Tuesday the 14th found Zaracon totally coherent, but RevKess was not with it. They elected to do a Brief instead of a full show. A full edition of PWN will air on Wednesday the 15th at the usual time.
Hello, listeners! Bet you are wondering how Mother’s Day and Death Rites wound up in the same show. Simple: Today is Mother’s Day and Thursday saw the death of my tradition’s founding high priest. Now, I don’t want you to get all sympathetic or empathetic with me. I appreciate the sentiment. I’m not looking for expressions of regret or condolences on his passing. The time was oddly appropriate, though.
Some of the best recognized Mother Goddesses are also Goddesses of death and destruction and rebirth. Kali, Sekhmet, Tiamat, just to name a few. In this episode we will not only honor some of the Goddesses of Motherhood, we will also honor some of the Goddesses of Death and Rebirth. Along the way I will share some memories of my high priest, Papa Tom and some of the music that makes me think of him.
An interesting article that my brother pulled up and shared in the chat room: Jesus Christ, the Myth by Barbara G. Walker – Pay special attention to her discussion of the Three Marys at the Cross to see how it pertains to this show.
